Oceanview two bedroom, two bath condo offers all the comforts of home, but with one added bonus- it comes with the beautiful Atlantic Ocean! The condo was purchased in the spring of 2012, and the owners have spared no expense to furnish it with beautiful and comfortable bedding and furniture.
Never been to our beach? You are in for a treat! Just tell the property manager what you and your family like to do, and your itinerary will be full.
Pleasure Island consists of Carolina and Kure Beaches- yes you really will be on Island time when you cross the Snow's Cut Bridge. Enjoy the day on the beach or if you need more adventure, venture into the deep blue sea on one of the many head boats that depart daily from the local marina, and try to land a big one in the Gulf Stream.We have restaurants that will prepare your catch the same day. Rather be under the water- ok, then take scuba lessons or snorkle a bit closer to the shore.
Kayak, canoe, wind surfing, and surfing are all available on the beaches and the sound. The sound? Didn't mention that- the Intercoastal Waterway is a main body of water from New York to Florida, and it runs thru the heart of our area. Boating and jet ski rentals are available on an hourly or daily basis.
Are you more of a landlubber instead of a water baby? No worries, we have lots for you to do.
Visit the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher and view the shark tank, or play with the hermit crabs and starfish in their element while staying in yours. The Aquarium is a must see for all ages. Don't miss it while you are visiting. History buff? See Fort Fisher Civil War Battlefield and learn how the fort was the last open water for blockade runners during the last days of the Civil War. Re-enactments are performed several times during the year.Also in the Fort Fisher area is the Fort Fisher-Southport Ferry, which is a ferry ride across the Cape Fear River to the fishing village of Southport. River? I forgot to tell you we have a river too. Water, water everywhere and you can see it all when you visit. The Cape Fear River is a major waterway to the State Port in Wilmington. The Port is closed to the public, but you can still see the ocean going tankers and container ships as they make their way from the Atlantic Ocean up the river to Wilmington.
Downtown Wilmington is a wonderful old city, incorporated in the 1700's, and the river front is alive and well with restaurants, antique shops, clubs, art galleries, and countless shops that sell local arts, crafts and jewelry. Take a horse drawn carriage ride at night or a ghost walk, and you may very well see several of our dearly departed in the form of a spirit. Wilmington is haunted you know, but don't be scared, this is one of the most friendly places you will ever visit. Thalian Hall is one of the oldest theaters in the United States, and take in a play or concert if you have time. The venue is beautiful, and look in the balcony section- you may see a surprise.The Children's Museum, Serpentarium, the Tar Heel Room in the downtown library, the riverboat, Henrietta, and the USS North Carolina are just a few of the attractions in downtown Wilmington.
Need to relax and spend a bit of 'down' time? Grab a book and a chair and head to the beach. With miles of pristine sand and sparkling water, you will find yourself relaxing within minutes. Check with our local sea turtle experts, and maybe you will be lucky enough to help the babies get to the ocean one night. This is an experience young and old never forget, and come back year after year to experience.
Like the pirate lore of old? Blackbeard and others cruised these waters on a regular basis, and some of his booty is reported to be buried in the Cape Fear region. Ship wrecks abound off the coast, and divers enjoy the marine life and the wrecks themselves while diving these waters.
Our beaches are very unique and beautiful, and we are very fortunate to call this home. We hope you will visit us often and respect the delicate balance of nature in our area.
See you on the beach!
